SOURCE: AMCOR SD10 Dehumidifier, Need to replace the electric fan motor.

Take it out, and search the part number on line, they are bout $40 with s/h. however my current discovery:
It made no sense to me that despite no visual issues, the fan motor is bad. So, with further research it turns out that the true culprit is the small thermistor/thermal fuse between the orange wire (ground) and motor winding wire. The thermistor is taped underneath the silver aluminium and yellow tape on the fan motor. I heard about this bad (open/no continuity) thermistor makes almost >99% of the fan motor problem regardless of any brand name because this cheap c-fram fan motor is NOT made in USA. I opened the motor, there is a silver (aluminum wrap) around the windings for the motor that needs to be cut. Careful not to cut the motor windings. Inside there is a thermistor or type of temperature sensor connected between the orange wire and a motor winding wire. On my motor this was no longer working.
The part marked "JET 123 NM1 2A 130C" is a thermal fuse. The 130C is the temperature rating. When the motor get hot (130C / 265F) the fuse opens. The circuit is broken and the motor stops.

The motor is still good. The fuse is blown. It must be replaced to get the motor running again. You could bypass the fuse but then you invite a fire hazard.

A replacement fuse is available from Digi-Key. It is a Cantherm SDJ1 DF128S (128C):

Part cost 98 cents

You might want to go with the next higher temp (141C):

There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1& 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a mechanical unit,
uni, set the control knob to Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor may have failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

Is the motor working in it alright? Or does that make a sound also? That might be your problem.

Where can I find a instruction manual in French ?

Good Afternoon Ted, I am happy to assist you!

I see that your post is listed under Frigidaire dehumidifier and that you are seeking an instruction manual in French. May I have your model number please? You can typically locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) in the back by the water buck. With this information I can provide the correct manual to you and verify if it is available in French. Thank you and I looking forward to further assisting you. Best - Z

Dirty heat exchanger

the condenser (air intake) is blocked, most likely with dust, and the fan isn't passing enough air flow. either the fan is overworking and making noise or the compressor is overheating. if it can't cool down, the evaporator (cold coil) won't get cold enough to collect condensation. unplug the unit, take it outside, open the front, and hose the condenser down. if you can see light through it, it's ok. if not, spray some simple green degreaser on it and hose it down again after about 5 minutes. if you have a stiff bristled brush, use that, too.

Soleusair 45 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose

We have a Soleus Air 30 pint that initially would not drain through the hose that we attached and dropped down the sump drain. After reading here, I tried tilting it back about a quarter inch and that didn't fix the problem. Then I tilted it forward a quarter inch (I put a couple pieces of cardboard under the back wheels) and it started draining properly. It is doing a marvelous job of dehumidifying the house now!

Emtied water out of tray and machine will not strart lights are all on the top of the machine is their a reset button i did set the tray with a hose to empty by itself don't believe that would...

If the hose is still connected and it's not clogged, the water shouldn't have filled the bucket.But, let's get back to emptying the bucket and reinstalling it and the unit won't start.

Several things can cause the this. The first and most notable is the bucket is not installed properly. When that happens the bucket safety removal switch, does not make firm contact with the bucket when it's reinstalled. If the hose is still attached, temporarily remove it and reinstall the bucket so that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into it's holder. Make sure that is makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

The second most notable thing, is that the humidity level in the room is the same as whet you have the unit set to extract. In this case, the unit won't turn ON, until the surrounding humidity level rises. To test this, lower the humidity extraction level to 32%. If the bucket is installed properly and the Air Intake Filter is clean, the unit should start.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Is there a reset button for the power for the machine?

Anbna, there is no reset button for your discontinued model. However, you can try resetting it by doing the following:

Turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
Once the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the unit ON.

Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. And the unit will turn ON when you press the ON/OFF Switch.

It's also a good idea to check the outlet it's plugged into. It very well could be an issue with the outlet (no power) or the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

If you continue to have a problem getting it started, contact LG Customer Support 1-800-243-0000.

I hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My Goldstar dehumidifer won't do anything. I'm trying to take the back grill off so I can clean filter, blades and whatever. I've removed every screw on the thing and can't the back to...

tia0418 - I'm sorry you're having such a problem with this. But, taking off the back, won't allow you access to the air intake filter. It's behind the louvers on the front of the unit.

You failed to mention which model Goldstar Dehumidifier you have, but most have the same features. If you remove the bucket and look up in the cavity where the bucket was removed, you should see what looks like a plastic pull handle. That's the handle for the filter frame. Pull that down and the filter and frame will come out. You then can clean the filter, by following the Owner's Manual Instructions.

The clamps that you referred to are just spring type clamps in a "V" shape. Push the top of the "V" together and the back should release from the cabinet. You can "carefully" use a flat bladed screw driver to do this, if necessary.

Hope this helped you further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My dehumidfier won't shut off. I check everything out and it's good but it just won't shut off it keep running.

It may be, that you have it running in continuous mode, rather than timed mode. Also, most dehumidifiers fans will run almost continually, to keep the air moving, so the humidity sensor can pickup and increase in humidity, if there is one.

If the above doesn't seem to be the problem with your unit, turn The Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the electronics time to reset themselves, if necessary.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Flashing green light stays on, unit won't start when you press the on/off button

I believe the unit needs to me reset to the manufacturer's default settings. To do this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the outlet for 10 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The green light will blink until you change the humidity setting to below what the humidity level is in your home. If you set it higher, it will not turn ON or will turn ON only for a couple of minutes.

Also, check the position of the water collection bucket, to make sure that it's installed properly and has triggered the safety device.

To help you more, I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference, if you have misplaced yours. Take good care of your unit and perform routine maintenance regularly. As Danby has discontinued (retired) your model humidifier.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.
